Road Warriors tap Robinson

Harry How/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE THOMAS Robinson will be donning the jersey of NLEX in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

National Basketball Association veteran Thomas Robinson will be seeing action in the Philippine Basketball Association, after all.
After his deal with San Miguel Beer bogged down, Robinson signed with NLEX for the season-opening Commissioner’s Cup set on 5 November.

The Road Warriors made the announcement, saying that the 32-year-old forward will power them following a stint with the Leones de Ponce in Puerto Rico.

Robinson was supposed to play in the PBA as early as last year when the Beermen tapped him for the Commissioner’s Cup.

He, however, suffered a back injury before the opening of the conference, prompting the Beermen to replace him with Diamond Stone.

Now, NLEX head coach Frankie Lim is confident that Robinson is in good condition.

“I think he’s now okay,” Lim said in a report.

“When he was here, he didn’t play for San Miguel because of injury. But he lasted in Puerto Rico. He was able to finish his stint there without any setbacks.”

Robinson is coming in with a stellar resume.

After being taken with the fifth overall pick by the Sacramento Kings in the 2012 NBA Draft, the 6-foot-10 former Kansas star had stellar careers with the Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers.

He is also no stranger to international basketball as he played in countries like Russia, China, Turkey, South Korea and Puerto Rico.

His career best in the NBA came in 2015 in which he averaged 8.8 points and 7.7 rebounds in more than 18 minutes of play for the Sixers.
